The Principality of Purple Rain 45 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.206 billion Purple Rain 45ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Paul. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Purple Rain 45ian economy, worth 343 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 155,853 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Rain 45's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Love Symbol.

Purple Rain 45 is ranked 107,879th in the world and 337th in NationStates for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,088.26 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
